Gutter Maintenance Tips for Homes in the Rockford, IL Area

gutter maintenance

Fall is the best time to take care of gutters. As the weather gets cooler, the leaves fall off the trees and pile up in your gutter. This just makes the traffic worse, which is not only annoying but also dangerous during heavy rainstorms.

All year long, you can keep your gutters in good shape by keeping them clean and cutting back trees that could cause problems if they get too big. Below, we’ll talk more about each of these ways to clean your gutters.

Before you work on your gutter, the first thing to keep in mind is that if it gets clogged or dirty enough, water will pool around your foundation instead of draining. This is more of a problem in the winter when fewer leaves fall and gutters aren’t used as much. However, it can happen at any time of year, especially if your gutter is full of pine straw or other foreign material.

The best way to stop this from happening is to keep your gutters clean. A leaf blower or vacuum is the best way to get rid of them. You can use a rake instead if you don’t have one. Just watch for leaves that get stuck in the corners of your gutter and are hard to get out.
